Mon 12th Nov

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Latvia (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Bloc Party (music round)

No Halloween, No Fireworks, No Remembrance. Just shitty Christmas on the far horizon but that’s ages away. Let’s enjoy this period of calm.

And now: the music round free answer, it applies to tonight’s music round at the Safari and it is Bloc Party, who were the next big thing for a few minutes about fifteen years ago:

So what happens when you’re the next big ting, around fifteen years ago? Well, they’re still together.

In fact, having just looked them up, I see all of their first four albums made the top ten of the UK Album chart. Not bad from a band you never seem to hear about.

It’s Monday, so watch out for penguins:

They could be literally anywhere. Have you spotted any today?

Mon 29th October 2018 – Monday Night Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Adriano Celentano (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Happy Feet (music round)

Last week at the Safari we discovered that an average Emperor Penguin stands at 3’9″*. This week we feature penguins in the picture round. What is going on. Some sinister penguin takeover? Stay tuned.

Here’s the music round free answer, it applies to the Brass Monkey Leith and it is a gloriously made-up piece of 1970s lingual nonsense from Italy’s master of entertainment, Adriano Celentano:

You’ve probably seen this before.

Celentano wrote a song to show how he thought Western (English language) pop music sounded to Italian ears.

It’s proper gibberish but various people have tried to fit it to English words. Here’s one example.

Anyway: vegans, trans, gay, straight, tall, dwarf, multi-ethnic, ginger people, penguins, bus drivers and billionaires, you’re all welcome to the quiz tonight. Let there be no walls.

Mon 22nd October 2018 – Monday Night Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Hanna-Barbera (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: The Streets (music round)

Big wins last Monday – both for the Speckies. Money returns to normal tonight.

Here’s the music round free answer, it applies to the Safari Lounge quiz:

Dry your eyes? There’s a sentiment for the Snowflake generation (you) that bursts into tears at the merest unavailability of a vegan option or lack of fifty-two differently-gendered toilet bathroom situations.

See in my day – it was all woolly mammoths and national service and being a vegetarian (1987-93) was fucking hard work.

Actually it was easy enough – you just didn’t eat meat.

What am I ranting about? Nothing really – just a cheap attempt to be controversial and edgy. All I really want is for you to come to the quiz. Answer my cry for help: TONIGHT.

Monday Night Is Quiz Night

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£150. Cheat: English  (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Cookie Crew (music round)

Hey! Rollovers have been a bit thin on the ground at the Brass Monkey Leith during August and September, so tonight is the first time we’ve hit £150 at that lovely boozer since June.

Celebrate this landmark by coming down and winning the money. Also, there is a rollover at the Safari which is “only” £60. OMG. First World Problems.

Anyway – to help you win at the Safari here’s the Music round cheat:

Oh yes. This is the tune. One of my favourites of 87/88 and one of the first tunes where I realised that pop music was more about dance than about poetry.

Proper No, so it is. The piano = mmmmm,

Thanks to everyone who supported the PROF last night while I was engaged in a large quiz at the National Museum on Chambers Street. Sounded like it went well.

By the way if you use reddit at all – check out this post and tell ’em!

Best places for a pub quiz? from Edinburgh

##########################

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double (and people do).

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

I might be on the bike tonight but if I’m getting a taxi  I’m always happy to give you a lift between the two places. Free of charge!

Monday Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Little Miss Somersault (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: B-52s (music round)

Right – I know I’ve screwed this up twice already this month but tonight’s music round at the Safari DEFINITELY INCLUDES The B-52s:

The song is called ‘Butter Bean’ and doesn’t start in this video until 8’35” but I’ve linked to this video so you can see a couple of their other songs. They really are the greatest band in pop history.

I could give you some long explanation about how I got this totally wrong on two separate occasions but that would be tedious. It’s got something to do with shelves and months. I’ll leave it at that.

Anyway, come to the quiz, especially the Safari cos its always a bit quieter there which is a shame cos its an ace boozer.

Monday Night Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Diana Ross (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: The B-52s (music round)

Top quiz action tonight. Heavy, sexy, powerful. Will we have an ABBA singalong? Unlikely but you never know…

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari:

By the way, did you know that 1983 actually looked like this clip. This is not some effect to do with low-resolution recording and videotape degradation, the real world actually looked like this.

Thanks to developments in technology and politics, real life went hi-def in about 1998. And you kids complain if your skinny latte isn’t hot enough. You kids don’t know you’re born.

By the way – we have a winner for DEAD POOL in August. Old John McCain lost his long-running battle with death and that means that Tomas Sanders is a winner.

Dead Pool September 2017
Sep 2017 – the last time there was a John McCain Dead Pool surge

If Tomas can drag his ass to the quiz before the end of September he will receive a shiny £1 million scratchcard.

################################

Best prize for Dead Pool to date was £100 won by the bloke who predicted the demise of BB King back in 2015. Could this one be better?

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

Monday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Andy Warhol (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Narcotic Thrust (music round)

The music round tune tonight was, according to the info on youtube, the winner of “Best Pop Dance Track,” at the 20th Annual International Dance Music Awards in 2004. Aye, it’s all right. The video has plenty of none-too-subtle pants shots in common with several dance videos from around the same time, notably Destination Calabria which also featured the arousing use of brass.

The picture answer for Brass Monkey tonight is Andy Warhol. Did you know he was shot in 1968 and survived (after a five hour operation to save his life)?

His would-be assassin was a writer named Valerie Solanas who had written the ‘SCUM Manifesto‘, detailing a world without men.

She said that she shot Warhol because she thought he was going to produce her play and steal the rights.

The judge said she was a nutter and locked her up for three years. Warhol is said to have lived the rest of his life in fear that she would shoot him again.

Don’t get caught up in this kind of drama in your own life tonight. Just come to the quiz.

No shooting.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Israel (pic round)

Here is the preview of one of the answers in the music round at tonight’s Brass Monkey Leith quiz:

Oh – it’s a wee bit thrashy.

I thought from their name that Bullet For My Valentine would be an Emo band. Well, there you go. Isn’t life just full of surprises?

It’s like when you go to Berlin and you realise you can still smoke inside the pub. Crazy.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Walker Brothers (music round)

We are slowly getting the hang of this football hooligan chanting lark:

  • You’re going home in a public transport system.
  • You’re going to get your feely felt feeled in.

See. More prosaically, come to the quiz. I have jackpot cash, quiz questions and answers galore plus other stuff which you can only fathom by coming to one of the actual quizzes tonight.

As a way of thanking you for reading this far, I now present a preview of one of the answers in the music round at tonight’s Safari Lounge quiz.

The Whole Monday Thing

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: The Bean (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: Wyclef Jean (musc round)

Tonight’s Brass MOnkey quiz is the third fifty-quidder in a row. Will someone win the jackpot again? It’s not like the questions are getting any easier or any harder.

These things sometimes just go in runs.

Meanwhile, here’s the video which reveals the cheat clue for tonight’s affair at the Safari:

That’s the second Monday video in a row that’s been filmed in an airport. Don’t presume this is planned or a theme or some kind of clue. It’s just the quiz and this is just a co-incidence.
